Lima is a restaurant serving Peruvian cuisine. The inside of the restaurant is beautifully decorated in the style of an upscale South American restaurant with elaborate light fixtures on the walls and several decorative arches throughout the dining area. The restaurant itself is quite large, attracting large crowds, particularly on weekends.
Lima's menu is purely Peruvian, allowing guests an authentic taste of the South American country. Appetizers include a few different ceviche recipes, fried calamari, manchego croquettes with a chipotle sauce and the signature Lima empanadas which are filled with spinach, corn, manchego cheese and fig. Hungry guests should order the combo de lima uno for their entree, which is a whole chicken served with maduros, rice, beans and salchipapa on top of a fresh avocado salad.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food that is rolling out of this new restaurant! Mill Basin has just gained an outstanding new establishment, and I am so excited to return! The ambiance was beautiful, staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was absolutely delicious! Such a unique restaurant to the area, a true neighborhood gem! A+++++++
The food was good, so was the service. Nice ambience. The parking lot makes it convenient for patrons. The hostess at the entrance could have been a little bit more friendly.
